Produced and hosted by award-winning investigative journalist Maria Hinojosa, AMERICA BY THE NUMBERS: CLARKSTON, GEORGIA WITH MARIA HINOJOSA visits one of the country's most surprisingly diverse communities. A small town of 7,500 people that was 90 percent white in the 1980s, Clarkston is now home to residents from more than 40 countries who speak more than 60 languages and dialects; the white population today is less than 14 percent . The special explores lessons about democracy and coexistence that a divided nation can learn from its newest citizens.
